Sniper’s Alley

The alley

Someone asked me the other day of I would be able to shoot a decent URBEX shot without my DSLR and without relying on HDR. Well, here is the result of that challenge. I think it came out alright, and it was fun to seek out a subject with a limited enough dynamic range. I shot this one between two buildings, which helped keep the light fairly even, as everything in this shot was in indirect light, save for the far right corner of the shot.

I shot this image at the old abandoned VEB Chemiewerk Coswig, in Rüdersdorf, former East Germany.  For those who are familiar with the movie “Enemy at the Gates”, this is where much of it was filmed.  Needless to say, I moved wth caution on location, careful to avoid leaving myself open to a well placed head-shot from the great sniper Vassily Zaitzev!
